Happy Friday! Do you have some fun weekend plans? We have some rain and clouds at the beginning of the weekend, but I’m looking forward to a great Sunday. We’re planning a quick day trip. In today’s post I’m sharing how to style striped shorts. We shot this look at couple weeks ago when the trees were in full bloom! Aren’t they beautiful?

I love that this year’s spring trends are going back to the basics – with lots of stripes, wedge sandals, and lace. This outfit pulls together those 3 elements. I started with these dark blue striped shorts. I then added a lace t-shirt style top that I purchased from the Limited a couple seasons ago. (I have shared some similar shirt options at the bottom of this post.) I love all the detailing of the top and how it contrasts with the bold stripes of the shorts. I then added these wedge sandals. I only recently started pairing heels with shorts. Wedges are the perfect way to add height, while staying classy – neutral wedges are perfect for this. I finished the look with some simple aviator sunglasses and a large tote. I also did a pop of color on my lips – this has been my favorite shade for the last couple months. It’s the perfect slightly dressy/casual look for a daytime date or brunch out with the girlfriends.
